Willing. I want to do so may things in my life – be more involved my my comminuty, make better friends, be a better parent, be more involved in everything good… and yet am I willing? Willing to get up, to give up my time, my schedules, my plans, even my goals, to be where God wants me to be and doing what he wants? Am I willing to be outside my comfort zone? To make my friends uncomfortable in the process? To be That Girl? I don’t know. But I want to be, so, so desperately.
How do I find that willingness? And how do I train it into my children so that it’s natural for them? I need to continue seeking, striving, praying, trying to find the way – and to be open, willing to leave my nice warm bubble and BE… be outside, be light and salt, be where I should be and when I should be, and be open and willing to take new opportunities. Just to BE willing.
